Install PS3 Games Up to 4.89

Looking for a PS3 game installation complete guide? This guide gonna teach you everything about PS3 game installation. PS3 support many formats such as ISO “BLUE, BLES, BLUS”, PKG “NPEB, NPUB”) and you may have heard about PS3 HAN, HEN, CFW, OFW, HFW, and much more (It may confuse users, especially beginners). Don’t worry, all your misconceptions are going to be cleared in this article.

How do I know my current firmware?

  • If you have a non-jailbroken console does mean you are running Official Firmware (OFW) on your PS3 system.
  • Hybrid Firmware (HFW) installation requires before applying any patch on your PS3 system (above 3.55).
  • Custom Firmware (CFW) can be installed on limited console models (up to CECH-2508B)
  • HEN stands for homebrew enabler (Replaced with HAN)

PS3 PKG, ISO, PS3_Game (Folder/Disk) game can be installed and run on any exploited PlayStation 3 system (HAN/HEN/CFW). Once you have exploited PS3 System, you can install Multiman on it. Now ask yourself some questions, Is my PS3 jailbroken? Is my PS3 HEN, CFW and what is my PS3 system firmware? Once you have all your questions answers, you can continue this article.

Few points to know before installing games on PS3

  1. As I have mentioned above, MultiMan can be installed on any exploited PS3 system. Make sure you have installed MultiMan latest version (4.85) on your system.
  2. Tools like PS3 Pexploit, Mukport, and Trubancaster have been outdated.
  3. You can choose any PS3 game format, I mean to say PKG or Game ISO (BLUS, BLES, BLUE). Just do not choose CFW while you have PS3HEN jailbreak.
  4. PKG installation is pretty easy as compared to patch games using RAP files.
  5. There can be many reasons for the black screen of any game. Make sure you read the FAQs
  6. PS3 games can be installed/transferred via USB or LAN.
